With 45 washers and 45 dryers, Prowash is not a typical laundry mat. And what really separates this establishment is…More the fact that if you use any size washer or dryer (ranging from 18 to 75 pounds of laundry), you get free minutes on a dryer. The larger the washer, the larger the discount on the same-sized dryer. For example, when customers use the largest washer, they get 45 minutes free in the largest dryer. Prices for washers range from $3.50 to $9.30. At Prowash, customers purchase a rechargeable card, like a credit card, which is inserted into the washers and dryers. No need to carry a ton of quarters or get frustrated with dollar bills that are not accepted in a change machine. And an employee is present to assist customers with their laundry chores. Customers at Prowash can watch TV, let their children explore in the Kids' Zone, get snacks, soda or coffee in separate vending machines. The business has bathrooms for men and women, and a family bathroom. Prowash also has a drop-off service.
